A loan of $500 helped to buy merchandise: clothing, shoes and vegetables.


Concepcion Del Socorro's story

Señora Concepción is unassuming and very hard-working. She sells basic grains, tomatoes, onions, sweet pepper and clothing from a small stall in the city of Granada. She is the single mother of two children ages 13 and 14. Both are in secondary school and help her with the business when they are on vacation. Concepcion started this business when her mother became ill; her mother had taught her everything about buying and selling vegetables. Concepcion started working at the age of 11, and when she turned 28 she opened her own business. She now has two small locations where she sells vegetables and clothing.
She has taken out this loan for the purchase of merchandise: clothing, shoes and vegetables to sell. She likes offering good products to attract customers and improve her sales. One of her dreams is to have a greater variety of products so that her business will have great demand in the area. She hopes that customers will be able to find what they need at her business without going elsewhere.
